Realme 7i Pros and Cons

Realme 7i Review, Pros and Cons – Realme came up with a less powerful version of the 7 series called Realme 7i. The main reason for launching this phone is to target those who have less budget and are looking for a phone quite similar to the Realme 7 or 7 Pro with some commitment. In addition, the design of the Realme 7i is very close to its superior models in terms of perforated camera, as well as design. Now let’s take a closer look at the complete specifications of the Realme 7i.

Realme 7i Review

Highlights

  1. It is quite surprising that Realme 7i has a 90Hz refresh rate screen
  2. An incredible 64 MP quad-camera configuration is very much appreciated to be incorporated into a medium-range smartphone
  3. A Li-Po 5000 mAh battery with 18W fast charge is sufficient for daily use
  4. The Realme 7i ships with a large 8GB of RAM
  5. Under the hood, the device features the Snapdragon 662 chipset with a notable Antutu score of over 185,000

Design and Display

If we compare the design of the Realme 7i with its older version of 7 series, we notice that they look very similar, as they have exactly the same configuration as the front panel with a punch-hole camera, while on the rear side there are some subtle differences.

Note that the device exhibits a two-tone gradient appearance, equipped with an elevated rectangular camera module containing a total of four cameras. The thin bezels on the front add more value to the quality of the phone.

It is somewhat unexpected from Realme that it integrated a 6.5 inches IPS LCD HD+ panel instead of Full HD+ for a price range of around $ 210, while in the same range other brands are offering Full HD+ without any hesitation.

But there is still a reason to choose this phone only if you are looking for smooth movement and blur-free viewing experience, as it comes with a 90Hz screen. In addition to the 90Hz refresh rate, Realme took care of the screen protection including a Corning Gorilla Glass.

Memory and Internal

Speaking of performance, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset does an excellent job when it comes to handling basic operations, processing camera images, and playing games with high graphics. Without a doubt, your Adreno 610 GPU is so powerful that it will not disappoint you.

Moving on to the software, the Realme UI based on Android 10 is everything we need with so many interesting and essential features like Super battery saving, which is very useful when you run out of power, game space to prioritize game performance, focus mode, etc.

With regard to memory, this time Realme provided a large amount of 8GB of RAM along with 128 GB of internal storage so that its applications will never run out os storage, which is a common problem on phones with low memory. In addition, your photos, videos, documents, etc. are supported by a storage capacity of 128 GB that can be increased by an external SD card.

Camera

Like Realme 7 pro, the device features an elegant quad-camera module with a 64 MP main sensor to ensure that photos are clear and sharp with the next level of detail, an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle lens can help you expand your photos with a frame, and two 2MP sensors for two different tasks.

One serves to capture the depth of each image and the other works well in situations where objects are very small. Along with this incredible camera setup, an abundance of exceptional features awaits within the phone, such as Realme’s own UIS Max video stabilization, Super Nightscape, Ultra 64MP mode, night filters, and other essential features.

Inside the top left cutout of the drilled hole, lies a 16 MP selfie camera that has the ability to take incredibly sharp and beautiful selfies with Realme’s AI beauty technology. The 7i leaves no stone unturned, even when it comes to unlocking the phone using face unlock, even in slightly darker situations. Therefore, it is expected that you will not encounter any major problems with the 16 MP camera when making video calls or taking group selfies.

Battery and Others

While Realme 7 and 7i have an identical Li-Po 5000 mAh battery capacity, Realme 7 outperforms the 7i as it comes with a 30W Dart charger while the 7i’s charging speed is maintained at 18W, which is a moderate charging speed. The smartphone must be marketed in two variants of vibrant and dynamic colors – Aurora Green and Polar Blue. It was initially launched in Indonesia costing around $ 210 (15,500 INR) at the time of launch.
